iWork for iCloud Puts Your Apple Documents in the Cloud

iWork for iCloud Puts Your Apple Documents in the Cloud

You can get iWork for your Mac or iDevice, but now you can get it on the web. Apple announced new web apps that work nearly as well as their desktop counterparts, right from the web browser on any desktop platform.

With iWork for iCloud, you can edit existing documents you've saved to iCloud and even create new Pages, Numbers, and Keynote documents. The webapps aren't simple—you can actually create media-rich presentations from the browser. Clearly designed as a competitor to Google Docs, we still have yet to see if it'll make a dent. Developers get access today and standard users later this year.

Making a 1 Watt Solar Array.

I love my neighbor’s garbage I call them the parts department. In this, instructible I am building a Solar Array out of 30 solar lights my neighbor threw out.

For this project I am only going to use 18 of the solar cells for the array I am building. The array will be able to charge a 12 volt 10 watt hour battery in a day. The total cost of building this array is about 5 dollars, a comparable array or solar cell can run you 60 dollars.

Since all the parts are salvaged, I will test every thing every step of the way, I don't want to completely assemble the array only to find out one of the components I used is faulty.

For testing you will need a multimeter.

Incognito Tab Switch Flips Any Open Tab Over to Incognito Mode

Incognito Tab Switch Flips Any Open Tab Over to Incognito Mode

Chrome: Incognito mode is a great way to browse the web without leaving a cookie trail of data behind on your computer, but you always have to manually open up a new tab in Chrome to actually use it. If you'd rather just have an easy toggle, Incognito Tab Switch makes it simple.

When you press the Incognito Tab Switch button, it opens up your current tab in an incognito window. Keep pushing the button, and each tab gets added to the new incognito session. If you enable the extension to work in incognito mode, you can also switch those tabs back to normal browser tabs with a click. It's handy for those moments when you want to quickly flip a browser tab over to private session and you don't feel like typing in all your info again.
